W: First Impressions

New Kdrama ‘W’ has a refreshing plot about two people falling in love despite being in different dimensions. In the drama, Lee Jong Suk plays Kang Chul, who is a self made player with a complicated past. He lives in a manga world, which is based off of modern day Seoul. Han Hyo Joo plays Oh Yeon Joo, a doctor in the real world who is the daughter of a famous manga artist, who created the world that Kang Chul lives in. Big disruptions are coming to the manga dimension and Yeon Joo gets sucked into the manga dimension in order to help Kang Chul.

Because Kang Chul is the main character in a manga, his style has a classic manga extra flair. For example, who else can pull off a bright blue blazer? Only in the manga world can a character pull this look off. Even though he has been successful in business, his main focus has always been finding the person who murdered the rest of his family. As such, his style is street casual, not what you’d expect from an entrepreneur. Check out his manga inspired look here:

Yeon Joo is a doctor so she has to wear conservative clothes to appear more professional in front of patients. However, as she moves into Kang Chul’s world, she doesn’t practice medicine since she’s considered a fugitive. As Kang Chul’s faux fiancee, she has access to upgrade to a more luxurious wardrobe that doesn’t have as many restrictions as doctor gear. See her transformation here:
